Dear Doctor Mongo: I finished reading your book Doctor Mongo's Pickup Lines That Work and all I can say is YEEHAW! My favorite (that seems to work every time) is "Your lips are like ripe plums yearning to be plucked." Thank you for writing that book!

Doctor Mongo: Thank you for buying it. Those lines have always worked for me, and still do!

"Doctor, doctor, You've got to help me - I just can't stop my hands shaking!"
"Do you drink a lot?"
"Not really - I spill most of it!"
